The first session of the ninth legislature convened yesterday, with 113
newly elected and re-elected lawmakers reporting for duty at the Legislative Yuan.
Many legislators waited at the Legislative Yuan’s front door before it opened at 8am to be the first to report for work, including Democratic Progressive Party (DPP) legislators Huang Wei-cher (黃偉哲) and Chen Ou-po (陳歐珀).
First to arrive was DPP Legislator Cheng Yun-peng (鄭運鵬), who entered the Legislative Yuan via a side door without walking the red carpet lined with police officers and reporters.
Cheng said he had not intended to be the first legislator to report for duty. [FULL STORY]
